Volunteers were hard at work at Heartwood Forest today, planting trees in the breezy sunshine. More than a thousand trees went in to the ground!

If you would like to come along to a work party, the dates are as follows:

  • 23, 29 Jan
  • 6, 14, 22 Feb
  • 2, 8, 14, 20 Mar

Work parties run from 10am-3pm, but volunteers come and go as they wish, with some coming for an hour or so in the morning or afternoon, and some staying right through.

Tree planting will be the main activity at most (if not all) of these work parties, but there may be other tasks that need to be carried out. The meeting location varies according to the tasks that need doing, but you will be informed of where/when to meet before the day.

Hot drinks are provided, but you are asked to bring your own lunch/snacks.

What to wear:  Gloves, rugged waterproof footwear, plenty of layers and waterproofs

If you would like to come along or would like further information, please email heartwood@woodlandtrust.org.uk for further details.

Work parties are all during the week, but there is one final Community planting day on Sunday 11th March 2018, 10am-3pm.
